BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Lincoln College pounded out 14 hits, but it wasn't enough as Jefferson Davis outlasted the Lynx 13-11 in baseball action here Sunday afternoon. Jefferson Davis is now 19-4 while the Lynx fall to 1-4.

"Our kids battled all day, but we just didn't get the pitching today," said Lincoln coach Tony Thomas. "We had our chances in the late innings but couldn't come up with the key hit."

Adam York led the Lincoln College attack with three hits in four trips, including a double, two runs scored and two RBIs. Andy Bakhaus had four hits in six trips with a pair of RBIs and two runs scored, while Brad Hall and Nick Meredeth each had two hits. Jake Jones and Bryant Wright each had one hit for the Lynx.

Scott Aeschelman pitched the first four innings, giving up eight hits and five earned runs while walking one and striking out six. Kyle Bruce pitched two-thirds of an inning, and Colton McClellan pitched the final 3 1/3 innings, giving up six hits, four earned runs with one strikeout and two walks.
